A bright twist on a classic perennial! Radiant yellow foliage absolutely glows in spring, creating a brilliant focal point in the shade garden. Arching sprays of everyone’s favorite classic bleeding heart flower, pink and white heart-shaped blooms, dangle from the stems in late spring. The foliage typically mellows a bit in color as the season progresses. This cultivar grows a bit smaller than the typical D. spectabilis, reaching heights of up to 2 ft at maturity. After putting on this fantastic display, Old-Fashioned Bleeding Hearts usually go dormant until the following spring. However, if plants are kept well-watered during the spring, dormancy may be delayed until late summer or early fall. Other bushy perennials, such as Hosta, Geranium, or Sedge, should be planted nearby to fill in the resulting gaps.


Requires evenly moist soil with lots of organic content to enhance the water retention. Plant in a protected location with little or no direct sun. Goes dormant after blooming in most areas outside the far north (regular water will delay dormancy). Protect from late spring frosts.
